On 6 November 2015, PathPlanner Gate+ was succeeded by AviPLAN Airside Pro.


AviPLAN Airside Pro carries on where its predecessor, PathPlanner Gate+™, left off to deliver a unique feature-set tailored to meet the specific challenges faced by today’s airside planning, design and operations professionals. AviPLAN Airside Pro’s functionality has been developed and refined over many years, and is the result of knowledge and input from in-house airport planning experts and developers as well as equipment manufacturers, airport operators and consultants from around the world.

The ultimate tool for gate and stand design

With a comprehensive object library at its core, including 2D and 3D commercial airplanes and ground support vehicles and Passenger Boarding Bridges, PathPlanner Gate+ provides is the ultimate gate and stand planning solution. Features include:

Object Libraries

  • 150+ realistic 3D airplanes
  • 40+ realistic 3D airport-specific vehicles
  • 50+ realistic 3D Passenger Boarding Bridges variants
  • 400+ commercial 2D airplanes (top, side, front views*)
  • 275+ airport-specific 2D vehicles
  • 1300+ 2D Passenger Boarding Bridges variants
  • Passenger Boarding Bridge and Vehicle creation wizards
  • Design (critical) airplanes for each FAA or ICAO group
  • Predefined tractor(-towbar)-airplane combinations
  • Ranking and sorting functions for selecting correct critical airplane

* Front and side view not available for selected aircraft

Aircraft and Vehicle Path Simulation

  • Simulate 2D and 3D airplane lead-ins and push backs only

Gate and Remote Stand Design

  • Design 2D and 3D gate or remote parking positions
  • Specify apron slope, boarding bridge, lead-in line and gate limits
  • Select bridge options such as stairs and adjustable cab floor
  • Define and adjust bridge operational limits, within original limits
  • Place individual or multiple airplane(s) at desired position
  • Dynamically reposition airplane(s) to monitor, e.g. bridge slope
  • Insert multiple bridges and lead-in lines at the same gate (MARS)
  • Define fixed installation location and radius, e.g. fuel hydrant pits, 400 Hz
  • Select between multiple options for optimizing airplane positioning
  • Create multiple positioning scenarios, e.g. existing vs. optimized
  • View detailed real-time results, incl. warning indications

Airside Design and Operations

  • Display airplane service connections and vehicle arrangements, e.g. fuel, 400Hz
  • Display individual or merged safety clearance box
  • Display vertical clearances under airplane wings

Object Proximity Detection

  • Analysis of Passenger Boarding Bridge (PBB) position in relation to wing/motor/tail or other PBBs (if applicable), including a numerical overview of data and warning indication

Control and Reporting

  • Alternate between 2D and 3D mode
  • Specify a solid fill of airplanes and vehicles
  • Activate/deactivate and control elements, e.g. wing clearance
  • Use default or user-defined FAA and ICAO gear and wing clearances
  • Save property templates for use in future sessions
  • Create a detailed report with graphic and text details

Animation and Presentation

  • Create 2D and 3D presentations incl. individual or multiple simulation sessions
  • Arrange and set start/stop times for each simulation sessions
  • Follow a moving object or pan between fixed camera positions
  • Display static object(s) and path elements before and after animation
  • Select playback speed and display elapsed time in presentation
  • Set frames/second and video codec type to reduce AVI file size
  • Record presentations to AVI for playback using any compatible movie player
